New Classic Wednesdays: Hip Hop at Mi Casa Tamales & Cantina
I thought this was interesting. Austin has a new hip hop night and new venue getting in the mix. This new hip hop residency of sorts is called "Classic Wednesdays". The goal is to build the independent hip hop scene in Austin while combining it with classic '90s style hip artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Nas. Some new independent hip hop of the same back packer type flavor will be mixed in as well according to the promoters. It should be interesting for those who love hip hop in Austin. The rest of the details are on the poster you see above.
